You can watch it a million times, and yet, it will never get old

The Big Lebowski is the type of movie that is so funny, and so clever, you want nothing more but to meet the Coen brothers, congratulate them personally for their unique talent, and get inside their heads and find out what makes these two geniuses "tick". The main characters are Jeff Bridges (who plays such broad roles like The Muse, The Contender, and Sea Biscuit), John Goodman (who should have won an oscar for best supporting actor for his character, Walter Sobchak)Juliane Moore (Maude Lebowski)and Steve Buscemi (who is unique in every Coen Brother movie).

The first time I saw this movie, I will admit that I enjoyed it, but did not fully appreciate its level of humor and raw talent. I thought the middle section was a bit too depressing and long. But trust me, this is a movie that gets more funny every time you see it, even if it's your thousandth time seeing it. Its level of comedy, action, brutality, and vulgarity become that much more evident and important.

The characters are brilliantly written by the coen brothers, and, likewise, are brilliantly portrayed by the actors. The Big Lebowski is like no other film. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry. There is no other film such as TBL that is sharp and witty all the way through. One of the Joel and Ethan Coen's best, and one of the movie industry's best comedic film of all time. You want to go see this flick.

a great flick

I love movies that make you think. It was a mind-enhancing and provocative romantic comedy that kept me interested the entire way through. I suggest that everyone should see it. Not only was it great directing by Charlie Kauffman, it was great cinematography, great editing, and great acting. One of Carrey's and Winslet's best performances yet! Also, Marc Ruffalo ("You Can Count on Me")was a great addition to the movie. This movie proved, to me at least, that Elijah Wood can play all sorts of roles, and can have success in each role he takes up.

Tip: Charlie Kauffman also directed "Being John Malkovich" and "Adaptation"
